During the Mid-winter break I did not meet up with my aunt, she did not have any times to meet up that matched my times where I was a free. Instead of just being mad that I did not get to meet with my aunt, I went online and looked up as many videos of sailing possible. Most were very long and said the same things over and over again, but there were some that really informed me about the basics of sailing and made it quite entertaining. Although I did not get a chance to meet up with my aunt, I did text her back and forth about the date to go on the water. She does not know the exact week or day because of the harsh months of winter we have been having. I think that I will just meet up with her at Starbucks or someplace for an hour or two this week just to learn somethings that she learned over the years.

I have made a jump in my progress as I scheduled a meeting with my aunt that is a experienced sailer for a couple of days of the midwinter break. This means that I will go to her house with my mom for a couple of nights and just talk on what I need to know about sailing. This is a small but crucial step for me to learn how to sail. I think that we will do this many times before the spring season where I will start to go on the water with my aunt and mom. The project is not really stressful right now but I think that in a couple of weeks that I will be bombarded with a ton of work. That is because I can only do so much right now because there is ice in the water and it is freezing cold outside. I just remembered that I would need to get a boating license, I was freaked out on that it would take forever to get, but then I remembered that I got my license in the 7th grade. Now the only challenge is to find where that license is.
